WATCH: Game Delayed Amid Ugly Scenes As Man United Bus 'Smashed Up' Outside Upton Park
By Conor Neville Updated

The last ever game at the Boleyn Ground/Upton Park has been delayed by 45 minutes after crowd trouble outside the ground.

The Manchester United team bus was given the type of welcome that would almost make one nostalgic for Istanbul 1993.

The bus crawled through the throngs, the windows being pelted with glass bottles. The match will kick off at 8.30.

Wayne Rooney told Sky Sports that the bus has 'got smashed up' on the way in.

It wasn't nice. The coach got smashed up, but we are here now. I'm sure you'll see the images. It's not for me to say, but it was disappointing of course. It's a big night for West Ham, but I'm sure West Ham as a club will be disappointed with what the fans have done.

West Ham chairman David Sullivan has blamed Manchester United for not arriving at 4pm. He told Sky Sports that the police and officials had been too kind to United by delaying the kick-off for them.

I'm gravely disappointed, more for our supporters. What people forget is they've got trains and buses to get home and we've got a wonderful, wonderful show after the game for them. many just can't stay anymore.

Man United should have got here at 4pm. They know it's our last game. They had the same problem at Tottenham a few weeks ago. I think the police and officials have been kind. I'd make them kick-off at 7.45pm if I was in charge.
